My salad dressing days

It is against my religion

for anyone to dislike the song ‘One Note Samba’.

In particular the version by John Pizzarelli and Rosemary Clooney*.

But NOT the version by Frank Sinatra.

Or Astrud Gilberto.

Especially if sung and danced to in my living room.

Specifically RIGHT NOW.

* and yes, she is his aunt

Surely, the ONLY version of this song we should be concerned with is the classic Walter Wanderly version.

There is no other.

Glad to have cleared that up.

**out of breath as races back from amazon from listening to sample**

not a patch, wyndham, not a patch

rosemary still rocks

*shakes head sadly*

Comment by Wyndham

at least agree with me on this point:

sironic, innit, how walter’s version features on the soundtrack of ‘out of sight’, which features rosemary’s nephew?


Comment by Urban Chick

Ah, yes, a very good point! And a fabulous film. Easily J-Lo’s finest moment. And possibly George’s.

ps i always think connie francis was george clooney’s aunt. i just thought i’d mention that, before kellycat did.

Comment by surly girl

yes, you did lose me on this post but I enjoyed the opportunity to drool over George. He is as gorgeous as ever.

Comment by Kyahgirl

I am too busy listening to Frank’s version of Mambo Italiano to pay this any mind.

Comment by Whinger

Er, I was never under the delusion that Connie Francis was George’s aunt. In fact Rosemary Clooney had a guest part in ER once.

Sorry, UC but this is nowhere near as good as Mambo Italiano, the best version of which, Whinger, is Rosemary’s.

Although none of them are as good as Dino singing Sway (which my old boss had as the first dance at his wedding, which was pretty cool)

Comment by Kellycat

Huh! I’ll have to check these versions out… and Rabbit, rabbit! (good luck for December)
